Hi there,
What is the recommended amount of rock per gallon? I'm aquascaping a JBJ 28 LED tank. thanks!
Question by: Chris on Sep 30, 2013 8:07:00 AM
Hey Chris,
We recommend a pound per gallon as a good ballpark place to start. It will give a nice middle of the road aqua-scape and is what most folks are looking for!

I'm setting up a 35 gallon 20inX20in cube, out of the three pukani, reef saver or Fiji which offers the smaller pieces my tank requires for me to get the best results aquascaping? Thanks!
Question by: Kyle on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Hi Kyle,
Fiji and Reef Saver offer the smallest size pieces. Personally I prefer reefsaver in these types of situations as it is really easy to stack and create your aquascape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Nov 22, 2013 8:48:00 PM
Is the price shown here the price per pound? Thanks.
Question by: Steve on Sep 5, 2013 6:11:00 PM
Hi Steve,
Yes the rock is sold by the pound, so the quantity you enter in the quantity field is the number of pounds you are ordering.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 5, 2013 6:11:00 PM
Do the rock come in certain sizes or just random?
Question by: Bobby on Feb 9, 2014 6:38:00 PM
Hi Bobby,
There made by nature so they are like snowflakes, each piece is entirely different, though most range in the softball to football size.

I am starting a new tank with the Reef Saver Dry Live Rock and Caribsea Arag-Alive Fiji pink sand. Should I start the cycle with the sand first while I cure the rock and add the rock later? Or can I start the cycle with both the sand and rock? What is your recommendation?
Question by: Calvin on Apr 23, 2014 3:37:00 AM
Hi Calvin,
If your going to cycle the rock in the tank, I would just do your aquascape, add the sand, add the water, and then let the whole system cycle together.

I have a 75 gallon reef tank with only 60 pounds of live rock I want to buy 50 pounds of reef save dry rock but what is the process to do to add it to my existing tank without a problem
Question by: Christian on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Hi Christian,
The Reef Saver Rock is the cleanest of the rock so you don't have to worry about a cycle when adding it to an existing tank. You will get the best results by giving the rock a bit of a cure before adding it to the tank though. The simplest thing to do is to grab a container large enough to submerge the rock. Fill it up with your rock and some saltwater, throw a heater in it and let it sit for 4-6 weeks.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Aug 2, 2014 1:59:00 AM
Hello, i was going to buy some of this rock but i see that it does not display by how many pounds you guys sell it. How many pounds is the rock displayed?
Question by: Max on Jun 13, 2015 5:17:00 PM
Great Question,
We sell all of our rock by the pound. We ask that you give us an estimate of how many lbs of rock you are looking for (Ex. 1 lb per Gallon) The pieces shown in the product photo are not actual pictures of the rock you will receive, more of an idea of shapes and sizes, the typical Reef saver will range between 5-15 lbs for a football sized piece.
Answer by: Connor (Admin) on Jun 15, 2015 4:17:00 PM
How big is each piece?
Question by: Chad on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Hey Chad,
Each piece is different which is why its sold by the lb. Pretty typical for most pieces to be in softball to football size range with a football size piece weight somewhere in the ball park of 7-8lbs.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 17, 2014 4:13:00 PM
Just bought some of the reef saver rock. What temp should water be to cure. I'm going to be adding these to established reef with existing live rock. I'm going to cure for 3-4 weeks. Should I ever change the curing water while curing? When cure is done, do I just rinse rock off and add to tank or something else?
Question by: stanton on May 13, 2014 11:55:00 AM
Hey Stanton,
I would use water that is the same temperature as you will have the tank at. Pretty good bet that will be somewhere around 78 degrees or so. You don't need to do a water change while curing the rock but you want to get rid of all of that water when your done. If your curing in a separate container you can just move the rock to the tank. If your curing in the tank then do a 100% water change.

Hello I have the reef saver rock and wanted to know how many pounds to put in 60 gallon tank ?
Question by: Hector on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Hi Hector,
About 60lbs total should be great for a tank that size.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Jun 7, 2014 9:41:00 AM
Good Morning! I'm wanting to create a couple of islands in my reef tank hopefully creating a "bonsai" look. I've ordered 60 lbs of the reef saver rock and wanted a few of the shelves with the base. But it would only let me order a minimum of 20 lbs which came to almost a $100. Is there any way that I can order less than that? I'm not sure how much 20 lbs of the shelf rock would be and I only wanted a few pieces to add to each island. Thank you for your help~
Question by: Janet on Jan 22, 2014 4:31:00 AM
Hi Janet,
The 20lb minimum isn't because we don't want to let you buy less then 20lbs, its because a single rock weighs atleast 20lbs :-) Rocks with base are typically quiet large so if your looking for smaller/lighter pieces, the pieces without a base will be what your looking for :-)

I'm looking to add some dry rock to my existing setup? I will not be removing any of my current live rock I would just be adding the dry rock. So can I just put it right in or is there something I need to do to it first? Thanks for the help........Chris Turo
Question by: Chris T on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
Hi Chris,
We would always recommend cycling any rock outside of an existing aquarium before adding to a tank with livestock, though as far as rock goes the Reef Saver rock is by far the cleanest rock out of the box.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Mar 31, 2014 1:28:00 PM
do you need to cure reef saver rock the same as you would live rock or is it fairly free of organics?
Question by: john on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Hey John,
We would advise cycling any type rock from any source because it just isn't worth the risk of your live stock not too. As far as the rock goes though, the reef saver is by far the cleanest of any of the rocks right off the bat.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Sep 1, 2013 3:53:00 AM
Howdy y'all, I've seen the video of Ryan chiseling and cutting the Pukani rock. Is the Reef Saver rock as easy to manipulate and cut? Thank you!
Question by: Blake on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
Hi Blake,
The Reef Saver rock is much harder and not nearly as easy to manipulate. If you want to chisel out caves and the like I would highly recommend going with the pukani :-)
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 4, 2013 11:06:00 AM
I am in the process of planning a new tank, a JBJ 45 rimless Cube AIO and was wonder what is the recommended amount of rock for a tank this size as well as the correct amount of sand for it. the actual display portion of the tank will be 26 x 16 x 21 I was going to use the ocean direct original grade sand approximately 1- 2 inches deep. Would you recommend another type of rock for this?

Thank you.
Question by: Rob on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
Hey Rob,
Great questions. For a tank your size 45-50lbs of rock should be right in the ballpark of what your looking for. Sand wise with the dimensions of your tank, coincidentally your also looking at 45lbs to get you about a 2" sand bed (half as much for a 1" sand bed). With most sands being sold in 20lb or 40lb bags, I would pick up a 40lb bag (or 2x 20lb bags) and you should be in great shape.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Dec 23, 2013 1:28:00 AM
if I order 50 does that mean 50bls?
Question by: Diana on Oct 3, 2013 10:52:00 AM
Hi Diana,
Yes this product is sold by the pound, so the quantity that you order is the number of pounds that you are ordering.
Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on Oct 3, 2013 10:52:00 AM
does this rock have to acclamate
Question by: lynda on Oct 24, 2013 10:26:00 AM
Hi Lynda,
The rock isn't alive so it itself doesn't need to be acclimated. We would however recommend cycling any rock from any source being atleast cycled before adding to an existing aquarium to make sure there isn't any risk to your existing livestock.

BRS Reef Saver Dry Aquarium Live Rock, our environmentally friendly rock, works great for aquascaping. This rock is 100% free of nuisance algae and pests which can cause complete tank shut downs and is guaranteed to be free of apitasia, bubble algae, parasitic isopods, mantis shrimp, acro eating flat worms, little red bugs, fire worms, predatory nudibranchs, pyramidellid snails and other common pests. BRS Reef Saver rock comes in unique shapes that fit well together to make interesting and unique structures. BRS Reef Saver Rock arrives at our warehouse pre-soaked and rinsed.

BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Rock.  However, the UPS automation is not always gentle on heavy products like this and they do not consider this product insurable. Because of this, there is some inherent risk with shipping rock like this across the country and it is impossible to replace or refund broken pieces. If this happens most pieces can be repaired with epoxy.

  • Right price By Charles on 8/23/2015

    I ordered 20lbs to fill in some areas on my new tank. Out of the 20lbs I received 4 pieces and they were perfect, very little had broken in shipping. The only issue was I opened the box with the fragile sticker pointing up. I pulled the bag out and it was not tied shut. The rocks were covered in packing peanuts and some of the soy based one had stuck/melted to the rock. I think UPS had a hand in this one.
  • Exactly What You'd Expect! By Brett on 8/20/2015

    This rock is exactly what you expect! ROCK and nothing else. I made two orders for this rock and both times got more weight than I ordered, both with minimal rubble from shipping. The second order I did ask for smaller flatter rocks if possible, and I received similar to my first order. Pretty large and round. But maybe they don't come in what I was asking for.
  • Great rock By Wayne on 8/19/2015

    This rock was exactly what I wanted. It fit right into my rocks scape like it was there from the beginning.
  • Great Rock and very easy to aquascape! By Jeffrey on 8/16/2015

    It's no substitute for my favorite Pukani, but hard to find any fault with it. Its heavy, ultra easy to aquascape, very clean (just dusty) and curing it isn't necessary in most cases. I did get a diatom outbreak on it and the sand bed, but I didn't cure it first. The only fault I can give is that its not easy to break without using a hammer and drill bit. Then it started to crumble, so making smaller sizes is kind of challenging, but it can be done if you're careful.
  • Good Stuff By IowaVulcan on 8/13/2015

    I bought this to add to my tank and it came quick and looks good. Fairly porous. Good sized pieces
  • not as good as it once was By paul on 8/9/2015

    the rock was very good any other time but this time it was not as pourous it was mainly solid pieces of rock
  • This stuff ROCKS By mindi on 7/28/2015

    fantastic
  • This stuff is perfect By Jeramie on 7/26/2015

    Came fast and quick. super clean and ready to go. will be ordering more and highly recommend.
  • Will never buy traditional live rock again By Jon on 7/25/2015

    I ordered 100 lbs for my 125 and it was the perfect amount for me. The rock came well packaged and was a mix of large pieces and smaller ones. I wanted to form a few large arches so I got the bright idea of drilling the rock and holding it together with acrylic rods and glue. Drilling the rock just isn't feasible. You either end up breaking it or you can't make your way through because it's too tough. I ended up using a liberal about of glue and that worked just fine to hold the arches together. The nice thing about the rock is that it easily fits together with other pieces. So much easier to work with than traditional live rock.
  • Awesome Dry Rock By Sterling on 7/23/2015

    I ordered 20 pounds and I received a great variety and range of rocks that allowed me to build the perfect aquascape. Also arrives clean and ready to go, which was a huge plus for me.
  • Great rock! By Conny on 7/22/2015

    Very good rock for you saltwater reef!
  • Love this rock By Carmen on 7/21/2015
